Packaged wonton wrappers are a deliciously clever shortcut for making scrumptious homemade filled pasta called agnolotti. Use full-fat ricotta in the filling -- it adds rich flavour and is worth the splurge.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 36 wonton wrappers (3 inches/8 cm square)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 shallots thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • pinch each salt and pepper
  • 2 cups chopped stemmed Swiss chard
Filling:
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 cup grated Pecorino-Romano cheese
  • 1/3 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes finely chopped
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Filling: Stir together ricotta and Pecorino-Romano cheeses, sun-dried tomatoes, egg yolk, Italian herb seasoning and pepper.

Whisk egg with 1 tsp water to make egg wash. One at a time, lightly brush egg wash over wonton wrappers; spoon rounded 1 tsp filling onto centre. Fold wrapper diagonally over filling to form triangle; press edges to seal.

In skillet over medium heat, melt butter; cook shallots and garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in walnuts; cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in wine, salt and pepper; simmer for 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook agnolotti until pale and floating, about 2 minutes. Drain and return to pot; toss with walnut mixture and Swiss chard until chard is wilted, about 2 minutes.
